Add new ssh user

    I'm running Plesk 7.5.4 on FC2.

    I'd like to be able to add a new user that has shell access and can login via ssh so that I can disable root access through ssh.

    I can add the new user OK with "useradd" but if I then try to login via ssh I get a message

    sshd[23749]: Failed password for <user>

    However, I'm pretty sure I've entered the passord ok.

    Is there something else I need to do configure the new user for ssh?

    Regards,

    Stephen.

    Stupid question but it needs to be asked:

    Did you use the -p option to set the password?

    Yes, I did.

    I've since discovered that from Plesk if I set a shell on the "Shell access to server with FTP user's credentials" option in Domains:Setup then I can login OK through ssh. However, I still don't know how to get the same effect with a new user from the command line.

    Stephen.
